Here’s another small but very welcome feature in the latest beta of iOS 6 on the iPad: the App Store no longer requires that you enter your iTunes password when you install free apps.
In this latest beta (beta 3) of iOS 6 when you tap to install a free app the install begins right away, without any prompt to sign in with your Apple ID.
The App Store has had a major design refresh in iOS 6. I like the new look quite a lot – and having features like this one and not being booted to the home screen when installing apps is adding up to a much nicer App Store experience.
Hat tip to Killian Bell at Cult of Mac for mentioning this. I’ve tested it out this morning and it works as advertised.
Here’s hoping all these App Store features stay in the final release version of iOS 6.
